Running Gun Recorded by Marty Robbins Writter by Tompall Glaser and Jim Glaser
C F I rode out of Kansas City going south to Mexico G7 F C I was running dodging danger left the girl that I love so F Far behind lay Kansas City and the past that I had earned G7 F C Twenty notches on my six gun marked the lessons I had learned
F C Many times I sold my fast guns for a place to lay my head F C G7 Till the nights begin to haunt me by the men that I left dead C F Couldn't stand it any longer with this life that I'd begun G7 F C So I said goodbye to Jeannie and became a running gun
F I rode into Amarillo as the sun sank in the west G7 F C My thoughts in Kansas City and the girl that I loved best F As I smiled and kissed her gently and then turned away to go G7 F C Said I'd send for her to meet me when I'd reached old Mexico
F C I had barely left the saddle and my foot just touched the ground F C G7 When a cold voice from the shadows told me not to turn around C F Said he knew about my fast gun knew the price paid by the law G7 F C Challenged by a bounty hunter so I turned around to draw
F I knew some day I'd meet him for his hand like lightning flashed G7 F C My own gun stood in leather as his bullet tore its path F As my strength was slowly fading I could see him walk away G7 F C And I knew that where I lie tonight he too must lie someday
F C Now the crowd is slowly gathering but my eyes are growing dim F C G7 And my thoughts return to Jeannie and the home that we had planned C F Oh please tell her won't you mister that she's still the only one G7 F C But a woman's love is wasted when she loves a running gun
